Tesla’s Robotic Charging Arm Looks Like A Sentient Robot Dingus

We would love to be mature grown-ups about this, but we’re too busy screaming and wondering if anybody at Tesla has bothered to look up that whole “uncanny valley” idea.

For those wondering, this is, in fact, just a prototype; Tesla isn’t going to make our gas stations waving fields of sentient electricity spraying robot genitals… yet.

They’re just developing a fully automated system to charge up your car, so you can grab a soda from the convenience store while this robot lovingly caresses your car’s charge port.

Of course, you could stand there and just watch it happen. But that would be a little weird.
